Servings: 6 People


  • 1 5-6 pound standing rib roast 5-6 pounds
  • aluminum drip pan
  • Butter mixture:
  • 1/2 cup room temperature unsalted butter
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh oregano, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons coarse salt
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon coarse black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried marjoram
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice


  • Let roast sit at room temperature for 30 minutes to hour.
  • Preheat grill for high heat. Trim off excess fat from roast, but do not remove all of it. Combine herb-butter rub ingredients and apply evenly onto the surface of the roast. Coat it well.
  • Fill drip pan with 1 1/2 cup of water. Place roast on to grill with drip pan positioned directly underneath. Cook for roast 1 1/2 hours, or until internal temperature reaches between 135-145 degrees. Adjust grill temp as needed.
  • Once cooked, remove roast and let meat rest for 10-15 minutes before carving. Use the contents of the drip pan to make a fantastic gravy. Slice meat and serve with gravy, horseradish sauce, and your favorite sides. You can't go wrong with buttery mashed potatoes or Yorkshire puddings.
